Peter Weibel - Rewriter Early (conceptual) photographs, (expanded) films, (body) videos and (contextual) works, 1964-1975

DVD from Slought Foundation

Weibel started out in 1964 as a visual poet, and was soon transferring the structures of the visual culture from the page to the screen, while still retaining the model of language as one of perception. Later, he developed a critical impulse that turned not only against art but also against society and the media itself.

Sam Wainwright Douglas and Paul C. Lovelace - The Holy Modal Rounders: Bound to Lose

Sam Wainwright Douglas and Paul C. Lovelace - The Holy Modal Rounders: Bound to Lose

DVD

With voices like a sackful of rusty hinges, ramshackle playing a broken string away from careening madness, and a repertoire filled with itchy-balled ballads like "Fucking Sailors in Chinatown," the Holy Modal Rounders came on the Greenwich Village acoustic scene of the '60s like horndogs humping the folk movement's leg. Forty years later, they stand as perhaps the truest heirs to the Harry Smith Anthology's wild and woolly Americana—a point Sam Wainwright Douglas and Paul C. Lovelace's affectionate doc makes with a minimum of fuss and lots of bawdy hilarity. - Jim Ridley (Village Voice)

DVD from Center for Visual Music

Allures (1961), Samadhi (1967), Light (1973), Fountain of Dreams (1984), and Epilogue (2005)

"These five films by Jordan Belson, representing his early, middle, and later periods, are essential for three reasons: the early classics were breakthrough masterpieces, the previously unreleased "Fountain of Dreams" is a dazzling revelation from the middle period, and the shimmering "Epilogue" from 2005 makes it clear that the master still has the spark of genius, breathing new life into the vocabulary he has developed over more than a half-century of visionary filmmaking." - Gene Youngblood
